What does a first session with you look like?

Many of my clients say that they appreciate my style of counseling because they walk away with a different way of seeing things; new insights about themselves; and a better understanding of who they are and their thinking. I enjoy getting to know a person, their environment, how they were raised and the foundations created, as well as how their current environment is impacting them. Many of my patients say that they feel more hopeful after a session with me. I work with people who are struggling with their emotions and I try and empower a person while collaborating on practical interventions for healing and understanding oneself. There may be times that I am direct and challenge a way of thinking; there may be times that all you need is permission to cry. I am here for it all.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My treatment methods vary by person. I provide grief counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy for anxiety-reducing, stress reduction activities, psychoanalysis, illness adjustment counseling for health-related illnesses, meaning-centered psychotherapy for advance stage cancer, and supportive therapy for caregivers. I also provide behavioral activation for depression.
